Public Quasi-Public (P/QP) and Medium-Density Residential (MDR)
The proposed project involves the construction of a new two-story, 26,526-square-foot District office and demolition of an existing, 7,376-square-foot District office. The new District office would allow the District to consolidate its administrative functions into one central facility and would result in a net increase of 19,150 square feet of building space. Currently, the District staff population on-site is approximately 24 persons. The project would also relocate 28 staff from various other District facilities to the new District office. The proposed project would not result in an increase in staff in the District.
The newly constructed District office would provide a board room, restrooms, breakout rooms, conference rooms, offices, space for cubicles, and storage rooms. The footprint of the new District office would increase by 19,150 square feet. The location of the new building would be immediately south of the existing District office. The District office would be designed and constructed as a 37-foot-tall, two-story administration that would serve as District headquarters. Primary entrance to the administrative building would be from the northern side of the building, which faces the parking lot and property entrance/exit.
The project’s landscape plan would feature new landscaping to the west, north, and east sides of the building and throughout the reconfigured parking lot. The proposed landscape scheme would include a variety of drought-tolerant ornamental trees, shrubs, and ground cover—approximately 40 new trees and 1,800 shrubs and ground cover. No native oak trees would be removed; however, approximately 22 ornamental trees would be removed as part of the proposed project.
Vehicular access for the project site would be provided via Cirby Way. Staff and visitors would continue to use the District office main entrance as well as the parking spaces along the front entrance of the property. The path of travel and access points would change from the existing conditions of the project site as a result of the parking lot configuration. This reconfiguration would occur to accommodate the design and layout of the proposed building and to allow for safe and efficient vehicular circulation. The parking spaces in the western portion of the project site and adjacent to the proposed building would change from diagonal parking spaces to perpendicular parking spaces. Additional parking spaces would be provided in the northeastern portion of the project site on the currently empty grass lot.
Pedestrian access to the project site would continue to be provided via a public sidewalk along the northern and southern side of Cirby Way as well as along the western and eastern side of Crestmont Avenue; both streets are adjacent to the project site.
